BOTTOM LINE: WHL is recovering after breaching its support trend-line dated back to 2011
Currently teetering on the second resistance trend-line, a move through 6,785cps could see WHL retest the major resistance trend-line of its primary bear trend. Note that further upside may be limited by that trendline - if not, a positive breakout would be confirmed above 7,680cps.
A neutral long could be initiated through 6,785cps, so revise the position once the major trendline is tested and then increase longs above 7,680cps on continued upside; gains to 9,650cps could then follow.
A reversal through 5,855cps would extend the current bear trend, so in that case, go short below 5,485cps, with the target situated at 4,300cps.
